Review: The Coast-to-Coast Murders by: James Patterson & J.D. Baker

Title: The Coast-to-Coast Murder
Author: James Patterson & J.D. Baker
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Format: Hardcover (560 p.) Personal Purchase


A detective and an FBI agent join forces on what seems like an open-and-shut case—but a new rash of killings sends them on a pulse-pounding race against time in this intense thriller.
Michael and Megan Fitzgerald are siblings who share a terrifying past. Both adopted, and now grown—Michael is a long-haul truck driver, Megan a college student majoring in psychology—they trust each other before anyone else. They've had to. Their parents are public intellectuals, an Ivy League clinical psychologist and a renowned psychiatrist, and they brought up their adopted children in a rarefied, experimental environment. It sheltered them from the world's harsh realities, but it also forced secrets upon them, secrets they keep at all costs.

In Los Angeles, Detective Garrett Dobbs and FBI Agent Jessica Gimble have joined forces to work a murder that seems like a dead cinch. Their chief suspect is quickly identified and apprehended—but then there's another killing just like the one they've been investigating. And another. And not just in Los Angeles—the spree spreads across the country. The Fitzgerald family comes to the investigators' attention, but Dobbs and Gimble are at a loss—if one of the four is involved, which Fitzgerald might it be?

From coastal California to upstate New York, Dobbs and Gimble race against time and across state lines to stop an ingenious and deeply deranged killer—one whose dark and twisted appetites put them outside the range of logic or experience. 

My Thoughts: 

The chase is on when Michael Fitzgerald is on the run when he ends up with a dead girl in his bathroom.  Megan is struggling just as much to get to Michael to find out what he did.  All the answers don't lie in the current some of them lie in the past that the two have tried to bury multiple times.  As the bodies accumulate you have to wonder if Michael is really guilty and if he isn't who is?

I love Coast to Coast and found myself on the edge of my seat waiting to see who the bad guy was and why?  This book took you all over the United States to find the answers and solve the puzzle of who was bad and who wasn't.  

If you love James Patterson you will definitely love this great adventure he takes you on!
